    Frankly doesn't matter.

    There is no Zone of Possible Agreement. This is oddly similar to the SOF with Iraq. When both sides have a condition that neither will accept, you cannot have an agreement.

    The president isn't telling the whole story when it comes to the government shutdown. The fact is that Washington Democrats have slammed the door on reopening the government by refusing to engage in bipartisan talks. And, as stories across the country highlight the devastating impact of Obamacare on families and small businesses, they continue to reject our calls for fairness for all Americans.

    This is part of a larger pattern: the president's scorched-Earth policy of refusing to negotiate in bipartisan way on his health care law, current government funding, or the debt limit.

    OBAMA TO REPUBLICANS: Reopen the government

    As of this morning, Senate Democrats, acting in concert with President Obama, have rejected four different proposals from the House of Representatives to keep the government running and fund basic services.

    OUR VIEW: The Shutdown Party

    REP. CATHY MCMORRIS RODGERS: It's up to the Senate

    On Friday, September 20, 2013, the House of Representatives passed legislation to keep the government running funding Medicare, Social Security, veterans benefits, and more while removing funding for the president's health care law, which is driving up costs and hurting our economy.

    The Democratic-controlled Senate rejected this measure.

    On Saturday, September 28, 2013, the House passed another measure to keep the government running, delay the president's health care law for one year, and permanently repeal Obamacare's tax on pacemakers and children's hearing aids.

    Senate Democrats rejected the measure on a party-line vote.

    (The House also passed the Pay Our Military Act, which ensures our troops are paid during a government shutdown. Thankfully, that measure was adopted by the Senate and signed by President Obama.)

    On Monday, September 30, 2013, the House passed yet another measure to keep the government running and ensure fairness for all Americans under the president's health care law. President Obama delayed the law's mandates on big businesses and insurance companies; this bill would delay the law for everyone.

    The Senate rejected this measure too.

    John Boehner: Obama owns this shutdown now

    The Rebublicans should reopen the government and then Democrats should sit down to bipartisan talks. The Republicans should not win a single cent of concessions from Democrats during this shutdown.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Because the GOP didn't want to go to conference before means that the Dems, like spoiled children refuse to go now, with what was at stake? Oh, no my dear, the blame is Reid's and Obama's...

    THUS, the TRUTH is that Republicans have shut down Obamacare and Obama and Democrats have shut down everything else. Yet not one media source is reporting that obvious truth.
    That is one way to characterize it.

    I think that the Republicans are trying to extract an ideological concession from the Democrats using the only leverage they have and the Democrats are gonna call their bluff.

    No, no, no, the Republicans couldn't repeal a constitutional law that they didn't like and so the spoiled brats have decided to destroy the entire country because they couldn't get their way. The blame is solely theirs.

    No, nein, nyet, non, and again NO!

    The overwhelming majority of the American people don't want this law, never wanted this law, and put people in office for the expressed purpose of getting rid of this law, the Dems have shown themselves to be the Party of NO. It is their baby...

    The republicans should have called a conference committee in June or July or August or early September instead of waiting until hours before the deadline. Now it just looks like a political ploy to hold the country hostage until their demands are met.
